Welcome to Hargraves Institute

Your innovation community

Hargraves Institute is membership collaborative; a trust based hub where our members share their innovation ideas and experiences. It's a place where you can connect with real people practicing innovation everyday, sharing insights to help you constantly refresh your innovation knowledge.
The key to Hargraves is ‘Collective Wisdom’, shared amongst the members through the art of trusted conversations.
Our difference is what our members bring to the collaborative:
  • An enthusiasm to share their ideas and innovation experiences with you
  • A willingness to connect with fellow members and build direct relationships
  • An understanding that great insights often come from people working in completely different sectors or industries
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" Albert Einstein
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results"
Allan Ryan, Founder, Hargraves Institute

Our vision is to inspire innovation and collaboration, and we look forward to sharing your innovation journey with you.
